- Ballast Point Is Conducting a Crazy Experiment: They’ve taken a barrel that was first used to age their Three Sheets Rum for two years and filled it with Victory At Sea Imperial Porter to barrel-age; they just emptied the barrel after aging the beer for 18 months and have re-filled it with rum! This fresh rum with age for another 2 years, and sometime in 2014 they will release 200 bottles of rum aged in a barrel that had previously housed beer and rum. (Ballast Point)
